The Company may automatically charge and withhold such taxes for orders to be delivered to addresses within any jurisdictions where it deems it is required. When you order Books, or other products for overseas delivery, you may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied when the package with the Books, or products arrives at the destination that you specified. Any charges for customs clearance have to be borne by you, as the Company has no control over such charges and cannot foresee the amount charged (if any). Since customs policies vary from country to country, you should contact the customs office in the country where you have the Company deliver your Books, or other products to get more information. Please also be aware that you are considered the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of such country.
